Jesse Cox Audio Fellowship Opportunity For Storytellers
On Drive, Benjamin Law joins us in the studio, to talk about award winning radio producer Jesse Cox and the inaugural Jesse Cox Audio Fellowship launched in his honour by Audible this year.
Through community, public to commercial audio storytelling, the innovative work he produced included the ABC true crime podcast ‘Trace’ (which won a Walkley award), FBI Radio’s ‘All The Best’, ‘The Real Tom Banks’ (awarded Silver for Best Documentary, 2014) and ‘Keep Them Guessing’ (awarded Director’s Choice in 2013), in addition to working as head of Original Content at Audible’s APAC office.
The annual $20,000 fellowship will help a mid-career Australian storyteller create an innovative audio work. Storytellers from different disciplines are encouraged to apply and pitch an idea they feel suits audio for the 2019 award, and receive incredible mentoring, support and training to bring their project to life. There is a potential expansion to more opportunities on offer as part of the fellowship’s future.
Applications for the 2019 fellowship close on 30 July. You can find out more at jcaf.org.au.
